eDev Technologies, Inc. Unveils inteGREAT 8.0: Enhanced Usability and Collaboration Features and Support for the Microsoft Visual Studio 2012

  • October 10, 2012

TORONTO, Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – eDev Technologies (www.edevtech.com) today announces the release of inteGREAT 8.0, a new enterprise-class version of its award-winning requirements definition and management platform. The main themes of this new release are: Usability, Enhanced Collaboration & Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 support.

inteGREAT 8 provides enhanced usability, where users can do much more in much less time. The new Windows 8 interface is streamlined for ease of use and accessibility, resulting in a minimized learning effort. inteGREAT SmartDocs, a Microsoft Word plug-in, is a revolutionary new feature set that allows all stakeholders to contribute to any project by creating, tracing, reusing or editing requirements directly in Word, while connected to the single source inteGREAT repository. Additionally, inteGREAT now allows individual users to configure the information that they want to see in the Properties Window. The Application Menu has given way to Backstage, which presents the File related, and other options, more precisely and efficiently. “We understand how Business / Systems analysts, Product Managers and Project Managers work today and we continue to develop automation to make their jobs easier, and more efficient, while facilitating their use of the familiar Microsoft Office user interface,” say Asif Sharif, eDev’s Chief Technologist.

inteGREAT 8’s second theme is enhanced collaboration; this provides overall better decision-making, leading to clear and complete requirements. With inteGREAT 8, stakeholders have collaboration choices: SmartDocs will automate the document-based process and allow stakeholders to stay with the familiar Word UI and optionally utilize the SharePoint multi-user real time collaboration; or the new Visual Studio Team Foundation Server2012 collaborative workflow provides exceptional feedback and rating capabilities.

inteGREAT’s platform uses Visual Studio TFS2012 as its application server. inteGREAT 8 maintains its support for the existing Microsoft development and test environments and now inteGREAT 8 also supports many of the exciting new features available in the recently launched TFS 2012 and Team Foundation Service.

“eDev’s powerful formal requirements tool is a great example of how integration with key partners, through the Visual Studio Industry Partner (VSIP) program, increases the value of Microsoft’s lifecycle management solution for development teams,” said Tom Lindeman, Director of the Visual Studio Industry Partner program at Microsoft. “Team Foundation Server 2012 and eDev’s inteGREAT 8 improve upon the requirements lifecycle experience for distributed teams, helping them more easily build high-quality software that meets the needs of customers and stakeholders.”
